Pit bulls on the loose attack child, woman in South Seattle

The Associated Press

Two pit bull dogs running loose attacked a 3-year-old girl and 74-year-old woman Thursday night in south Seattle.

Police say the little girl, her sister and mother had just left church and were trying to climb into their car when one dog bit the girl in the face. The second dog bit the girl on the head, leaving two puncture wounds. Some men in the group chased off the dogs.

About a block away, they knocked down the 74-year-old woman. The dogs didn’t bite her, but she hit her head on the ground and also injured a hand.

Medics took the girl and the woman to a hospital for treatment.

Police searched but couldn’t find the dogs.
